large hurnination of c6-c7
i have been through all the options and steps to take trying to avoid surgery but i learned tonite this is now my only option. knowing what the surgeon has told me and watching the procedure on line i am terrified. so many things can go wrong even post op. i need to talk to others who have had this done and the aftermath,does anyone fair well or are there even more fears. already they tell me 4-6 wks recovery, wearing a ridgid neck brace. cant get point of entry wet so cant bathe like one would like to. every day will be a challange. just to try to fuction ,be normal as if it hasnt already been very difficult dealing with the pain. ive delt with months of this and i cant deal with living on the pain meds anymore either. what if this fails? am i better off living with what i deal with now or risk an outcome that can be worse even more debilitating. any one with any imput would be great. me and my pain that is all i have known and no one who doesnt know does not or cant understand.
